*** First Generation

Francis1 Sprague Arrived in Plymouth as a Purchaser in July 1623 on the ship Anne from London with wife Lydia (1602 - 1660) and daughter Anna. (Various references do not agree: his wife may have been Anna, and the daughter Lydia) He was a man of influence and property for those times. In 1623 he shared in the division of lands given to those who came on the Anne. (Every person was given one private acre.) In 1632 he settled in the NE part of Duxbury, MA. In 1637 was admitted as Freeman of the colony. Scholars are undecided, because of the inconclusive early records, but it appears that being elected Freeman had to do with the right to vote in Plymouth Colony affairs. This right was not extended to everyone. In 1632 he was also licensed to sell liquor. It appears that this was the first liquor license granted in the colonies. His license was suspended in 1638 (for imbibing too many of the sprits he sold) and renewed in 1640. (Ref: Saints and Strangers p. 235, 321) In 1645 he was one of the original purchasers of Dartmouth. In 1650 he was made Constable of Duxbury. "Mr. Sprague did not adhere strictly to the enactments of the civil code of the Puritan Fathers and was several times brought before the Court for what they considered departures from the strict line of duty. His ardent temperament and great independence of mind did not fully accord with the principles of the Puritans, but considered from the present standards of estimating the characters of men, he must have been a person of worth and great respectability. We know that he was the head of a most honorable and respected family of descendants." (Ref: Sprague Genealogy, Sprague Families in America, 1915 supplement by Frank H. Sprague) His death must have occurred shortly before 1669 as that is when his son John2 took over the running of tavern. (A separate source says his death was approximately 5-29-1670.) (Other reference: Planters of the Commonwealth)
